Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak, who set up the account with Sheriff Joe Lombardo, tweeted that he has pledged $10,000 of his own money.
The Sheriff and I have set up an account to aid survivors and their families. I've pledged the first $10K. https://t.co/UMcQtZLgmr

“We are raising funds to assist the victims of the tragic Las Vegas shooting. I spent last night at Sheriff Lombardo at Clark County’s only level-one trauma center.
Funds will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting.”
At least 58 people were killed and more than 500 people were injured when a gunman opened fire during a country music festival Sunday night.
As of late Monday morning, more than $700,000 had been donated toward the goal of $1 million.
